They are not confined to one place, region, faith or denomination.

Yesterday, a man described as “ultra-Orthodox”went berserk at a gay pride parade in Jerusalem.  The suspect has been identified as the same man who stabbed three people at the same parade in 2005.  Yishai Schlissel, an ultra-Orthodox Jew, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for that attack and was released from prison three weeks ago. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin struck the correct tone as he condemned the stabbing as a “terrible hate crime”.  “We must not be deluded, a lack of tolerance will lead us to disaster. We cannot allow such crimes, and we must condemn those who commit and support them.”   Amen.

The Jewish state repealed a ban on consensual same-sex sexual acts in 1988.  By contrast, it was not until fifteen years later that the United States Supreme Court invalidated state criminal anti-sodomy statutes-over the vigorous (and predictable) dissent of “I-don’t hate gays” homophobe, Justice Scalia (joined by two others.).  Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558, 123 S.Ct. 2472 (2003).  The recent attacks in Jerusalem, Charleston and Louisiana made me think what a toxic mixture we have in the United States of religious fanatics, intolerance and guns.  It’s frightening.

Knife-wielding man attacks Gay Pride parade in Jerusalem.  How long until someone (with a gun) does it here?
